Introduction of the study Talent Management

Talent management implies recognizing a person's inherent skills, traits,  personality and offering him a matching job. Every person has a unique unique talent that suits a particular job profile and any other position will cause discomfort. It is the job of the Management, particularly the HR Department, to place candidates with  prudence and caution. A wrong fit will result in further hiring, re-training and other  other  wasteful activities. Talent Management is beneficial to both the organization and the employees. The organization benefits from: Increased productivity and capability; a  better linkage between individuals' efforts and business goals; commitment of valued employees; reduced turnover; increased bench strength and a better fit between  people's jobs and skills. Employees benefit from: Higher motivation and commitment; commitment; career development; increased knowledge about and contribution to company goals; sustained motivation and job satisfaction. In these days of highly competitive world, where change is the only constant factor, it is important for an organization to develop the most important resource of all - the Human Resource. In this globalize world, it is only the Human Resource that can  provide an organization the competitive edge because under the new trade agreements, technology can be easily transferred from one country to another and there is no dearth for sources of cheap finance. But it is the talented workforce that is very hard to find. Talent signals an ability to learn and develop in the face of new challenges. Talent is about future potential rather than past track record. So talent tends to be measured in terms of having certain attributes, such as a willingness to take risks and learn from mistakes, a reasonable (but not too high) level of ambition and competitiveness, the ability to focus on ‘big picture’ issues, and an awareness of their  own strengths, limitations and impact on others. Several talent management processes need to be in place on a strategic level in order ensure its success. Such processes/strategies include talent identification, recruitment & assessment, competency management, performance management, career development, learning management, compensation, succession planning etc. Talent management has a number of benefits to offer such as employee engagement, retention, aligning to strategic goals in order to identify the future leadership of the organization, increased productivity, culture of excellence and much more.



1.2 Objectives of Study:In the current scenario of cutthroat competition, every company has to survive to satisfy its customers by providing them quality products and services. The summer  training at Company, was undertaken with a view to study certain fundamental as well we ll as th thee co comm mmerc ercial ial an and d op opera erati tion onal al aspect aspectss of th thee co comp mpan any y. The The trai traini ning ng involved the study of the following:

To understand the need of Talent Management

To stud study y the the accu accura racy cy and and qual qualit ity y of work work of empl employ oyee eess by ta tale lent nt management procedure.


To suggest possible improvement in Talent Management process.

Rationale of the study



The ‘talent’ in an organization refers to the current employees and their valuable Knowledge, skills and competencies. Talent management (or succession management) is the ongoing process of analyzing, developing and effectively utilizing talent to meet Business needs. It involves a specific process that compares current talent in a department to the strategic business needs of that department. Results lead to the development and implementation of corresponding strategies to address any talent gaps or surpluses. Talent management for the HR Community is a priority of the HR Strategy for  the HR Community. Not only does the HR Strategy support the HR Community as its own professional group, but it also recognizes and will support the role human resource professionals have to help their clients become skilled, committed and accountable public servants. The implementation of a talent management process that is transparent and equitable is expected to create an environment for people to develop their skills in preparation for a range of future possibilities thereby preparing the workplace for changing roles. The goal of this process is to map the business needs of the HR Community with the potential and career development needs of our   people in order to develop a comprehensive Talent Management Plan.


Limitations of Study:-



1) All the functions are only related with the the personnel department. 2)

Limitation about about the working working hour of the worker worker in the factory.

3) Limitation about the time and absenteeism. 4) Company not allowing to disclose confidential information 5) Time factor factor was the major major limitation limitation of of this survey. survey. Because Because during during survey survey any activity of organization which is directly or indirectly related to the  production process should not disturb due to survey.

Object of the project: This “Talent Management” Project I completed completed from Company, Company, For the fulfillment of the full time course of MBA of Pune university for the year 2009-2010. In Company I made research on Talent Management process because company want to know that, is it talent management is really beneficial for them or not. I proved them that talent management is really beneficial for company by doing this project. I completed this project because it was a requirement of our MBA full time course. I learned various things in this project, like audit, SAP HR module, personal administration. Etc.



Chapter 2: Research Methodology



Chapter 2: Research Methodology Review of literature  


APPROACH Traditional HR systems approach people development from the perspective of  developing competencies in the organization. This can actually be a risk-prone approach, especially for companies operating in fast evolving industries, since competencies become redundant with time and new competencies need to be developed. Thus, over time, the entire approach to development of people might be rendered obsolete calling for rethinking the entire development initiative. Talent management on the other hand focuses on enhancing the potential of people by developing capacities. Capacities are the basic DNA of an organization and also of  individual potential.

4.3 Understanding Talent The idea of developing talent is not a new concept in any business. In fact every successful company that has 'stood the test of time' has done so, Because of  their ability to attract, retain and get the best out of their talent. Today we read of a 'war for talent’. This has emerged, not because companies have forgotten about talent, or allowed it drop off of the radar but, because in some fundamental ways, the talent has changed. We have a new kind of young person entering the business world, with a very different world view, set of values, priorities and goals.

  Research Methodology Research Methodology is a way to systematically solve the research problems. It may be understand as a science of studying how research is done scientifically. In it


18 we are studying his research problems along with the logic behind them. It is necessary the researcher to know not only the research method techniques but also the methodology.

Types of Research:It is descriptive type of research. Descriptive Research survey and fact finding inquiries of different kind. The major purpose of descriptive research is descriptive the state of affairs, as it exist at present. The main control over the variable; he can only report what has to discover the even when there he cannot the variable. The methods has to researcher utilized in descriptive research are survey methods of all kind.

Data Source:The source of project depends on accurate data. That’s why data collecting the appropriate data, which differ considerable in context money, cost, time and other  resources at the disposal researcher. There are two types of data collection methods available:1) Primar Primary y Data Data Colle Collectio ction n Method Method.. 2) Second Secondary ary Data Data Coll Collecti ection on Metho Method. d.



2.3  Primary And Secondary data 1) Primary Primary Data Data Collectio Collection n Method Method.. Primary data are those that are obtain by the user for fulfillment their purpose.

Chapter 3: Profile of the Organization.



3.1 History of Company

Founder of Company-Werner von Company  Born- 13 Dec. 1816 to 6 December December 1892 Company was founded by Werner von Company on 12 October, 1847. Based on the telegraph, his invention used a needle to point to the sequence of letters, instead of  using Morse code. The company – then called Telegraphen-Bauanstalt von Company & Halske – opened its first workshop on October 12. In 1848, the company built the first long-distance telegraph line in Europe; 500 km from Berlin to Frankfurt am Main. In 1850 the founder's younger brother, Sir William Company (born Carl Wilhelm Company), started to represent the company in London. In the 1850s, the company was involved in building long distance telegraph networks in Russia. In 1855, a company branch headed by another brother, Carl von Company, opened in St Petersburg, Russia. In 1867, Company completed the monumental Indo-European (Calcutta to London) telegraph line. In 1881, a Company AC Alternator driven by a watermill was used to power the world's first electric street lighting in the town of Godalming, United Kingdom. The company continued to grow and diversified into electric trains and light bulbs. As Werner had envisioned, the company he started grew from strength to strength in every field of electrical engineering. From constructing the world's first electric railway to laying the first telegraph line linking Britain and India, Company was responsible for building much of the modern world's infrastructure. Company is today a technology giant in more than 190 countries, employing some 440,000 people worldwide. Our work in the fields of energy, industry,


23 communications, information, transportation, healthcare, components and lighting has  become essential parts of everyday life. While Werner was a tireless inventor during his days, Company today remains a relentless innovator. With innovations averaging 18 a day, it seems like the revolution Werner started is still going strong. In 1890, the founder retired and left the company to his brother Carl and sons Arnold and Wilhelm. Company & Halske (S&H) was incorporated in 1897. In 1907 Company had 34,324 employees and was the seventh-largest company in the German empire by number of employees. In 1919, S&H and two other companies jointly formed the Osram lightbulb company. A Japanese subsidiary was established in 1923. During the 1920s and 1930s, S&H started to manufacture radios, television sets, and electron microscopes.

Chapter 4: Introduction of  Talent Management.



Chapter 4: Introduction 4.1 Meaning Definition With businesses going global and competition becoming intense, there is mounting pressure on organizations to deliver more and better than before. Organizations therefore need to be able to develop and deploy people who can articulate the passion and vision of the organization and make teams with the energy to perform at much higher levels. These people build and drive the knowledge assets of a corporation, the value of  which has been established to be many times more than the tangibles. The capacity of  an organization to hire, develop and retain talent is therefore the most crucial business  process and priority on the CEO’s agenda. The 1990’s ended with a call-to-arms to fight “the war for talent”. While the war for  talent clearly has cooled in the early stages of the 21st century, dampened by economic doldrums & concerns with global security; the rear battle to attract, motivate, development & retain talent is going to heat up considerably. A looming demographic time-bomb will make Talent Management a priority for organizations. A host of issues like: loss of human capital, talent shortages, ageism, and cultural clash has made acquiring & managing talent difficult. Talent Management describes the process through which employers of all kinds –  Firms, Govt., and Non-profit organizations – anticipate their human capital needs & set about meeting Thus Talentinto Management to: getting the RIGHT PEOPLE with the them. RIGHT SKILLS the RIGHTrefers JOBS.



It is a professional term, also known as “Human Capital Management” that refers to the process of developing & fostering new workers through on boarding, developing & keeping current workers & attracting highly skilled workers to work for  your company. Companies that are engaged in Talent Management are strategic & deliberate in how they recruit, manage asses, develop & maintain an organization’s most important resource – its PEOPLE. This term also incorporates how companies drive performance at the individual level. Decisions about Talent Management shape the competencies that organizations have & their ultimate success; & from the perspectives of individuals, these decisions determine the path & pace of careers. We may thus understand that this term is usually associated with competency based HRM practices. Talent Management decisions are often driven by a set of organizational core competencies as well as  position – specific competencies. The competency set may include knowledge, skills, experience & personal traits.

4.2 Human capital management Companies that engage in talent management (Human Capital Management) are strategic and deliberate in how they source, attract, select, train, develop, retain,  promote, and move employees employees through the organization. Research done on the value of such systems implemented within companies consistently uncovers benefits in these critical economic areas: revenue, customer satisfaction, quality, productivity, cost, cycle time, and market capitalization. The mindset of this more personal human resources approach seeks not only to hire the most qualified and valuable employees  but also to put a strong emphasis on retention. Since the initial hiring process is so expensive to a company, it is important to place the individual in a position where his skills are being extensively utilized. The term talent management means different things to different organizations. To some it is about the management of high-worth individuals or "the talented" whilst to others it is about how talent is managed generally - i.e. on the assumption that all  people have talent which should be identified and liberated. From a talent management standpoint, employee evaluations concern two major areas of  measurement: performance and potential. Current employee performance within a specific job has always been a standard evaluation measurement tool of the  profitability of an employee. However, talent management also seeks to focus on an employee’s potential, meaning an employee’s future performance, if given the proper  development of skills. The major aspects of talent management practiced within an organization must consistently include.

 performance management leadership development workforce planning/identifying talent gaps recruiting

This term of talent management is usually associated with competency-based human resource management practices. Talent management decisions are often driven by a set The of organizational core competencies as well as position-specific competencies. competency set may include knowledge, skills, experience, and personal traits (demonstrated through defined behaviors). Older competency models might also contain attributes that rarely predict success (e.g. education, tenure, and diversity factors that are illegal to consider in relation to job  performance in many countries, and unethical within organizations).

Chapter 5: Talent Management



Chapter 5: Talent Management 5.1 Meaning and definition Talent management implies recognizing a person's inherent skills, traits,  personality and offering him a matching job. Every person has a unique unique talent that suits a particular job profile and any other position will cause discomfort. It is the job of the Management, particularly the HR Department, to place candidates with  prudence and caution. A wrong fit will result in further hiring, re-training and other  other  wasteful activities. Talent Management is beneficial to both the organization and the employees. The organization benefits efforts from: Increased productivity and capability; a better linkage  between individuals' and business goals; commitment of valued employees; reduced turnover; increased bench strength and a better fit between people's jobs and skills. Employees benefit from: Higher motivation and commitment; career  development; increased knowledge about and contribution to company goals; sustained motivation and job satisfaction. In these days of highly competitive world, where change is the only constant factor, it is important for an organization to develop the most important resource of all - the Human Resource. In this globalize world, it is only the Human Resource that can  provide an organization the competitive edge because under the new trade agreements, technology can be easily transferred from one country to another and there is no dearth for sources of cheap finance. But it is the talented workforce that is very hard to find. The biggest problem is how to retain the present workforce and stop them from quitting



Importance First, let us look at some of the reasons for the importance of talent management. •

Globalization:   Now for any jobseeker the whole world is the potential potential place to find employment. One can know the opportunities available in any part of the world easily and the number of talent seekers has also increased.

Increased Competition:  

Increased competition in the market place has necessitated the need for  consistently good performance on the side of organizations. These have made the companies to put in all efforts to hire and retain the best talent in the respective field of operation.

Increasing Knowledge: The knowledge era has necessitated the retaining of those talents which have the ability to assimilate new technologies and knowledge, which are growing at a pace never seen before.



How Talent Management important for an Organization: Organization: 1) Cost cutting: One experienced & skilled employee can replace instead of two or more employees. Organization can save hundreds of thousands of dollars.


Maximum Output Organization can make maximum out put in minimum resources.


Time Saving technique  

It is a time saving technique. Because for every job a skilled person can place. It’s helpful to complete job in minimum time


Perfection iin ncrease Due to skilled employee Perfection in work is increase. There is low  probability of mistakes.

How Talent Management important for an Employee: •


It’s ensuring that right people are attracted to the organization, due to  providing exposure for there skills. •

Retention  Developing and implementing practices that reward and support employees.

Employee development

  Ensuring continuous informal and formal learning and development. •

Leadership and "high potential employee" development  Specific development programs for existing and future leaders.

Performance management  Specific processes that nurture and support performance, including




Workforce planning 

Planning for business and general changes, including the older workforce and current/future skills shortages.

Culture  Development of a positive, progressive and high performance "way of  operating".

5.2 The Challenge The challenge of talent management has two faces. First is how to find new  people and second is how to retain the present workforce. Each of the challenges has to be tackled in the most efficient way possible so that the organization can achieve its objectives.

The First Challenge - Where to find new talent? All the organizations are finding loads of business opportunities and consequently, their revenues are growing at a rapid pace. The increasing business opportunities has necessitated that these organizations go in for massive recruitment. But, the question is where to find the best talent which is able to fit the job description and also adjust to the organization’s values and norms. If we scan the environment, we find there is a shortage of skilled workforce that can be employed. Some of the possible reasons that have led to the shortage are: Demographic Constraints:

This is a common problem faced by many of the developed countries, where a large chunk of its population is nearing the age of retirement or is over 50 years. USA, Germany and Japan are facing the same problem. All these countries will see a decline in their workforce and talent. In the coming years, they will see a great shortage in their skilled professionals.

Existing Educational System: The graduates and the postgraduates that are being churned out of the universities are found to be ill-equipped to handle the challenges of the workplace.


37 They are mostly equipped with only the theoretical aspects of the issues and lack the application part. The educational system is faulty and does not take industry needs into consideration, resulting in a mismatch between industry requirements and educational preparation.

Cost Factor: Recruiting new employees is becoming tougher and tougher in the   developing countries, where the HR department has to sort out thousands of  applications for a handful of jobs. Finding right person for the right job becomes a very difficult process. It also involves very high cost to conduct the recruitment and selection process for such a large population of applicants.

Attracting the Best Talent:  This is another challenge. As was the case in the past, the best available talent is not just motivated by the name and fame of the organization. Not any more. They have a new set of motivators like - challenging work, conducive work environment and freedom from bureaucratic structure.

The Second Challenge - How to retain the existing employees? Gone are the days when a person would join an organization in his mid-20s and would work till his retirement in the late-50s. Today the young professionals hop jobs, especially during the first 4-5 years of their work life. Though the Indian service industry is basking in the light of outsourced jobs from the developed countries, they also cannot ignore the fact that the BPO industry is also facing one of the highest attrition rates, in fact never heard before in India, of around 35%. It is a fact that it’s the people that add value to organizations. It is also a fact that humans are a restless species who, unlike the immovable Banyan Tree, cannot stay rooted in one place. People need to move on for one reason or another, and the organization stands to lose.

Let us look at some of the reasons behind the massive attrition rates: -

1. Gap between between organiz organization ational al values values and goals goals and and the persona personall values values and goals is one of the major reasons of the attrition rates. If they go parallel, there is no way both would be satisfied and inevitably, the organization would lose out on a talented employee.

2. Working Worki ng environm envi ronment ent is aanother ano ther major majorwork factor. Emplo Employees yeesFailure in the the knowledge knowl era demand creative and democratic environment. on theedge part


38 of the management to provide such an environment will result in a talented employee leaving the organization.

3. The competit competitive ive world world has made made sure that that there there is high high work pressure pressure on the the employees of any organization. This has led to psychological problems like stress, in extreme situations, total burnouts. It also leads to other health relatedand problems.

4. Movement Movement for higher higher salary is also common common among among the young younger er professionals professionals.. There is no shortage for organizations who are looking for talented employees and who are ready to shell out a hefty salary for a talented person.

Retaining the present employees is of the foremost importance to the organizations  because; the company would have already incurred heavy costs in the form of training and development. Now if the organization has to look for a replacement for the employee who has left, it involves a lot of costs like - hiring costs, training costs and the induction costs.

5.3 How to Manage the TALENT? It is now proved beyond doubt that, in the era of technology and knowledge, talent is in the driving seat. One who possesses it dictates. Not he who pays for it. It is the demand of the time that business leaders elevate management of talent to a burning corporate priority. It is not a walk in the park for the talent market. Quality people are no longer available in plenty, easily replaceable and relatively inexpensive. These are some of the measures that should be taken into account to hire and retain talent in the organization, to be efficient and competitive in this highly competitive world: -

Hire the Right People: Proper care must be taken while hiring the people itself. It would be beneficial for  an organization to recruit young people and nurture them, than to substitute by hiring from other organizations. Questions to be asked at this stage are: Whether the person has the requisite skills needed for the job? Whether the person's values and goals match with job. those of organizations? In short, care must be taken to fit the right person to the right

Keep the Promises: Good talent cannot be motivated by fake platitudes, half-truths and broken  promises. Unfulfilled expectations can breed dissatisfaction among the employees and make them either leave the organization or work below their productive level. Promises made during the hiring stage must be kept to build loyalty among the employees, so that they are satisfied and work to their fullest capability.

Good Working Environment: It has to be accepted by the organizations that highly talented persons make their    own rules. They have to be provided with a democratic and a stimulating work  environment. The organizational rules must be flexible enough to provide them with freedom to carry out their part of task to their liking, as long as the task is achieved.


40 Opportunities should also be provided to the employees to achieve their personal goals.

Recognition of Merit: It is highly motivating for any person if his talent is recognized and is suitably rewarded. One way is providing them with salary commensurate with their   performance. Promotions and incentives based on performance are another way of  doing it. Another way is by providing them with challenging projects. This will achieve two objectives - it makes employee feel that he is considered important (a highly motivating factor) and gets the work done in an efficient manner and brings out the best in the employee.

Providing Learning Opportunities:  Employees must be provided with continuous c ontinuous learning opportunities on and off  work field through management development programs and distance learning  programs. This will also benefit the organization in the form of highly talented workforce.

Shielding from High Work Pressure:   If an organization has to make the most of the available talent, they should be  provided with adequate time to relax, so that they can did-stress themselves. It is very important to provide them with holidays and all-expenses-paid trips, so that they can come back refreshed to work and with increased energy. They must also be encouraged to pursue their interests which are also a good way of reducing work  environment stress. Recreation clubs, entertain programs, fun activities with in the work area will also reduce the work life stress of the employees and develop camaraderie among the workers and result in a good working environment.

Talent + Vision/Mission/Strategy +

Skills & Competencies + TALENT & PERFORMANCE Role & structure + Opportunity Organizations provide individuals the opportunity and space for physically + manifesting their talent into performance for individual and organizational Encouragement &achieving Recognition vision. Talent manifests into performance +as follows: Training & Development + Coaching + Action Plan & Goals + Resources Performance Management System Performance



Thus the domain of talent management focuses not only on development of  individual’s intrinsic capacities, but also on culture building and change management to provide the other elements listed above for manifestation of talent into  performance.

The New HR Mission and Talent Management Processes Many challenging workforce issues confront HR, including: •

Heightened competition for skilled workers.

Impending retirement of the baby boomers.

Low levels of employee engagement.

Acknowledgement of the high cost of turnover.

Arduous demands of managing global workforces.

Importance of succession planning.

Off shoring and outsourcing trends.

This requires new thinking and a new mission to achieve business success. These factors—coupled with the need to align people directly with corporate goals—are forcing HR to evolve from policy creation, cost reduction, process efficiency, and risk management to driving a new talent mindset in the organization.


42 One important distinction is the evolution of the difference between tactical HR and strategic talent management. Transactional HR activities are administrative overhead. Talent management is a continuous process that delivers the optimal workforce for your business. In this new model—instead of being the owners of processes, forms, and compliance—HR becomes the strategic enabler of talent management processes that empower managers and employees while creating business value. With this view, talent management may be defined as the implementation of  integrated strategies or systems designed to improve processes for recruiting, developing and retaining people with the required skills and aptitude to meet current and future organizational needs. Anecdotally, talent management is often defined as performance management, incentive compensation, or talent acquisition. Talent management is also often confused with leadership development. Although leadership development is a crucial function of your organization, focusing on it exclusively is a legacy of last century. Our modern service and knowledge economies in the talent age require a  broad and holistic view. A high performance business depends on a wide range of  talent. Taleo’s graphical representation emphasizes the mandate of talent management to respond to business goals and consequently be the driver of business performance. Talent management is depicted as a circular—not a linear—set of activities.

5.4 Why Talent Management? Workforce cost is the largest category of spend for most organizations. Automation and analysis of your recruiting and hiring processes provides the immediate workforce visibility and insights you need to significantly improve your   bottom line. Performance management provides the ongoing processes and  practices to maintain a stellar workforce. Today, many organizations are struggling with silos of HR processes and technologies. The future of talent management is embodied in solutions designed from the ground up to provide business-centric functionality on a unified talent management platform.

Since nearly all competitive business factors have become commoditized, talent is what ultimately drives business success and creates value. Leading organizations organizations


43 rely on Taleo solutions and services to assess, acquire, develop, and align talent with business objectives while significantly reducing process costs, improving quality of hire, reducing risk, and achieving higher levels of performance. Though it may seem intuitive, it is worthwhile to articulate the fundamental significance of successful talent management practices: •

The key enabler of any organization is talent.

The quality of your people is your last true competitive differentiator.

Talent drives performance.

Talent management requires strong executive support, along with systems and  processes all directed towards having the right talent doing the right work at the right time. That’s when talent truly drives higher business performance.

7.4 Succession Planning



Introduction Success, growth and survival are the most important responsibilities of the top management of the organization. Succession planning is the activity connected with the succession of incumbents to fill the key positions in the organizations hierarchy as and when a vacancy arises. Succession planning focus on identification of vacancies and locating the probable successor. It provides the succession chart in respect of a particular position. The succession planning ensures the availability of the right kind of the management staff at the right time and in the right position in order to provide for  continued organizational vitality and strength.

What is Succession Planning? Succession planning is the systematic identification and professional  development of internal talent. Its goal is to cultivate internal human capital in  preparation for assuming leadership roles and other key positions that may may become vacant due to retirement, expected or unexpected separations. For Succession planning for management staffing plans are required to be developed properly on an individual basis for all anticipated needs in the immediate year a head and also for key positions. The business plans must be reviewed to determine there effects on managerial needs. Succession planning is one of the important functions of the top management. In fact the direct responsibilities of the chief executive and the top management group.

For Example: Suppose, Mr. A will retire within some days, from the post of “Production Manager” Then HR manager should place right person who will able to carry liability of that post. For selection of right person as well as to give idea about job to candidate, mostly HR Manager prepare planning, like: HR Manager will place candidate under supervision of Mr. A to learn difficult things of job, or he will give training to that candidate or he will search a candidate who already have idea about job profile of “Production Manager”, i.e. “Succession planning.” In short when any employee or candidates leave job, HR manager should  prepare plan to place correct candidate on that post.

Challenges of Effective Succession Planning   Successful succession planning, as we've seen, is an ongoing and complex endeavor that is necessarily broad in scope. It therefore presents significant barriers to  both implementation and long-term maintenance. Here are some of the more challenging obstacles: •


Traditionally, HR has been considered owner of the succession planning  process, but meaningful success really requires a genuine sense of ownership and commitment at many levels of the organization. While HR may be best positioned to oversee the process, it can never fully know or evaluate every process  participant the way managers and supervisors can. •


All but the smallest of organizations have a substantial number of positions critical to long-term performance, whether these involve leadership skills or  technical expertise that would be difficult to quickly replace. Comprehensive succession planning must incorporate all such positions; yet, as the number of   positions grows so too does the administrative burden. •


Succession plans need to reflect long-term organizational goals and strategies. Companies must give thoughtful consideration not only to the plan's design and implementation, but also to sustaining the process over time. As strategies and goals shift, so too must the plan if the organization is to recruit and develop the workforce its future success will require. •


Conglomerate, geographically dispersed, multi-industry, and other complex organizational forms significantly increase the challenge of succession planning.


60 Often, higher-level positions require well-designed cross training to inculcate the unique knowledge and skills success in the organization requires. •


As companies evolve in response to marketplace threats and opportunities, the skills, talents, and expertise they will need to thrive evolve, as well.


The larger and more complex an organization, the more challenging it is to maintain an effective and efficient succession planning process. Yet, by definition, the best process is the one that enables the firm to identify the best candidate in least amount of time and at the lowest cost.

Having this process in place is vital to the success of the organization because the individuals identified in the plan will eventually be responsible for ensuring the company is able to tackle future challenges. These 'high potential' candidates must be carefully selected and then provided training and development that gives them skills and competencies needed for tomorrow's business environment. Another reason its important is because these high potentials will one day become the leaders of the Company. This is why their development needs to incorporate a  broad range of learning opportunities in your your organization. The individuals should also be exposed to as much of the working environment as possible so that they gain a good understanding of what the company requires to remain successful.

7.5 Implementation of Succession Planning: Succession panning is the planning to place a person on another  employee’s place who will retire after one or two year. Succession planning is conduct in every organization. It is a part of Career   planning.

Officer’s level: At officer’s level Succession planning conduct by following methods.

1) Pe Pers rson onal al m mee eeti ting ng


61 Head of the department take the personnel meeting with the employee who is going to retire because he wants to know that employee’s opinion about to place new right candidate on his place.

2) Employee dialogue: Employee dialogue is a dialogue between employee (who will go to retire) and head of the department, regarding place new candidate at his post, which have ability to fulfill requirements of job.  

3) Opinion of subordinate: The head of the department should consider the opinion of  other staff or subordinate also.

Employee assessment centre Introduction   This method was first applied in Germany Army in 1930. Later business and industrial houses started using this method. This is not a technique of a  performance appraisal by itself. In fact it is a system or organization, where assessment of several individuals is done by various experts by using various techniques. In these approach, individual from various department are bought together to spend two or three days, working on an individual or group assignment similar to the ones they would be handling when promoted. Observers rank the  performance of each and every participant in order of merit. Since assessment centre are basically meant for evaluating the potential of candidates to be consider  for promotion, training and development, they offer an excellent means for a conducting evaluation process in an objective way. All assess get an equal opportunity to show their talent and capabilities and secure promotion based on merit. Since the evaluators know the position requirements intimately and are trained to perform the with evaluation process an objective manner, the performance rating may find favor majority of theinemployees. A considerable amount of  research evidence is available to support the contention that people chosen by this method prove better than those chosen by other methods. The centre enable working in a low status department to compete with people from well-known departments and enlarge there promotional chances. Such opportunities, when created on regular basis, will go a long way in improving the morale of promising candidates working in less important positions.

Employee assessment centre: Employee assessment is a committee of a Psychiatrist, advocate, consultant etc. there are 3 to 5 people on the committee. They give a one task to the


62 employee and he should complete that task within a given time e.g. Give a  presentation on specific topic within half an hour.

Chapter 8: Training and Development



Chapter 8: Training and Development 8.1 Meaning and Definition Introduction After an employee selected, placed and introduced her or she must be  provided with training facilities. Training is the act of increasing the knowledge and skills of an employee for doing a particular job. Training is a short-term educational  process and utilizing a systematic and organized procedure by which employees employees learn technical knowledge and skills for a definite purpose. Dale S. Beach Define training, “The organized procedure by which people learn knowledge and/or skill for a definite  purpose.” In other words training improves, changes, moulds the employee’s knowledge, skill, behavior, aptitude, and attitude towards the requirements of the job and organization. Training refers to the teaching and learning activity carried on for  the primary purpose of helping members on an organization, to acquire and apply the knowledge, skills, abilities and attitudes needed by a particular job and organization. Thus, training bridges the difference between job requirement and employee’s  present specifications.

 No organisat5ion matches the candidate who exactly matches with the job and the organizational requirements. Hence, Training is important to develop the employee and make him suitable to the job. Job and organizational requirement are not static, they are changed from time to time in view of technological advancement and change in the awareness of the total quality and productivity Management(TQPM).

Training is needed to fill this gap by developing and molding the employee’s skill, knowledge attitude behavior etc. to the tune of the job requirements and organizational needs. 5) Tech Techno nolo logi gica call adva advanc nces es:: Every organization in order to survive and to be effective should adopt the latest technology, i.e. mechanization, computerization, automation. Adoption of the latest technology means and methods will not be complete until they are manned by employees possessing skill to operate them. So, organization should train the employee to enrich them in the areas of changing technical skills and knowledge from time to time. 6)

Hum Human re rela lati tion ons: s: Trends in approach towards personel management have change from the commodity approach to partnership approach, crossing the human relations approach. So, today, management of most of the organization has to maintain human relations besides maintaining sound industrial relations although hitherto the managers are not accustomed to deal with workers accordingly. So, training in human relations is necessary to deal with human problems and to maintain human relations.

8.3 Methods of Training

Methods of training

On-job methods

Job relations Coaching Job instruction Training through Step by step Committee assignments Internship training

Off-job methods

Lectures/Conferences Films Simulation Exercise Cases Programmed instructions Audio visual methods Computer based training E-Learning.

The most widely used methods of training used by organizations are classified into two categories: On-the-Job Training & Off-the-Job Training. ON-THE-JOB TRAINING It’s given at the work place by superior in relatively short period of time. This type of training is cheaper & less time-consuming. This training can be imparted by basically four methods: Coaching It is learning by doing. In this, the superior guides his sub-ordinates & gives him/her job instructions. The superior points out the mistakes & gives suggestions for improvement. Job Rotation: In this method, the trainees move from one job to another, so that he/she should be able to perform all types of jobs. E.g. In banking industry, employees are trained for both back-end & front-end jobs. In case of emergency,


68 (absenteeism or resignation), any employee would be able to perform any type of   job. OFF THE JOB TRAINING: -

It is given outside the actual work place. Lectures/Conferences:-  

This approach is well adapted to convey specific information, rules,  procedures or methods. This method is useful, where the information is to be be shared among a large number of trainees. The cost per trainee is low in this method. Films: -

It can provide information & explicitly demonstrate skills that are not easily  presented by other techniques. Motion pictures are often used in conjunction with Conference, discussions to clarify & amplify those points that the film emphasized. Simulation Exercise: - 

Any training activity that explicitly places the trainee in an artificial environment that closely mirrors actual working conditions can be considered a Simulation. Simulation activities include case experiences, experiential exercises, vestibule training, management games & role-play. Cases:   Present an in depth description of a particular problem an employee might encounter on the job. The employee attempts to find and analyze the problem, evaluate alternative courses of action & decide what course of action would be most satisfactory. Experiential Exercises: -

Are usually short, structured learning experiences where individuals learn by doing. For instance, rather than talking about inter-personal conflicts & how to deal with them, an experiential exercise could be used to create a conflict situation where employees have to experience a conflict personally & work out its solutions. Vestibule Training: Employees learn their jobs on the equipment they will be using, but the training is conducted away from the actual work floor. While expensive, Vestibule training allows employees to get a full feel for doing task without real world  pressures. Additionally, it minimizes the problem of transferring learning to the  job.



Role Play:   It’s just like acting out a given role as in a stage play. In this method of  training, the trainees are required to enact defined roles on the basis of oral or  written description of a particular situation.

Management Games:   The game is devised on a model of a business situation. The trainees are divided into groups who represent the management of competing companies. They make decisions just like these are made in real-life situations. Decisions made by the groups are evaluated & the likely implications of the decisions are fed back to the groups. The game goes on in several rounds to take the time dimension into account. In-Basket Exercise: Also known as In-tray method of training. The trainee is presented with a  pack of papers & files in a tray containing administrative problems & is asked to take decisions on these problems & is asked to take decisions on these within a stipulated time. The decisions taken by the trainees are compared with one another. The trainees are provided feedback on their performance.



8.4 Implementation of training and Development: Method of training: Method of training is totally depending upon the profile of training. E.g. for  technical training if possible then they give on-job training otherwise company use method of off job training.

Procedure of training: Assessment of need of training:

It is the first step of training procedure. Head of the department and HR    department assess the need whether employee need training or not. They find employee who require training. Prepare budget for training:  

HR manager decide budget for training by considering its cost from the

market. And benefits for the company. Search for Internal or External trainer: Internal Trainer: After assessment of need of training, they search for a trainer in theirs company who can train there employee. They search trainer among their  employees. External trainer:

If they didn’t find internal trainer then they go for External trainer. They try to find external professional trainer from their personnel contact, by giving advertisement in news paper etc. Design program for training:   HR manager or head of the department present there need to trainer. They assess type of training and design training program by the help of trainer  within the budget. Report to head of the plant:   HR manager give the details about training to head of the plant and sanction the approval of training. Implementation: After designing the program for training, they implement in practical in

their employee.

Individually, members of the community and their  managers should work together to move forward individual career development plans.
